Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to crushing hazards from falling loads: a. In the area of the north and south casting lines, there were three below-the-hook lifting devices that were attached to an overhead crane's hook that were used to lift metal coils up to 6,000 pounds throughout the casting lines. The lifting devices did not have an identification plate or any other means to indicate the lifting device's lifting capacity, thereby exposing the employees to a struck-by or caught-between hazard. b. Located in the casting department in the bell annealer section of the facility, there was a below-the-hook lifting device (spider) that was used for lifting alloy pots that did not have an identification plate or any other means to indicate the lifting device's lifting capacity, thereby exposing the employees to a struck-by or caught-between hazard.
